Thought this would be interesting and fun subject. Your "Underrated Starter" nominee must have the following minimum requirements:

1. Sub 50 trade meter value

2. 65 or lower AI default value

3. 650 or more plays for the season, at least 8 games started

4. On the first page of stat leaders by category, like sacks for defense or TD receptions for offense.

post a comment also about why you nominated the player or what they were able to produce.

CB2 Brian Gowan - 61 tackles, 23 knockdowns, 2 INTs, 36.2% catch percentage: https://paydirt.myfootballnow.com/player/3083

Default Rating: 67 (so close enough)
Trade value: 38
Contract: 4 years, $12.3m

His speed will drop this year, which means he'll rotate to my SS2, and thus, no longer be a starter. But you can't argue with the production.

Green Bay Packers nominee for Most Underrated Starter:

FS/CB Albert Lando. Ai rating 53, started 12 games/690 plays. Led team in interceptions with 5, was thrown at 85 times, allowed 42.4% catches, 1 sack. Key atts: 83 speed, 61 punish, & 57 tackle. Trade value? ..... 11 ..Current salary: 142k & 13k bonus :)

Originally drafted by the Raiders in the 29th round of the allocation draft. Released by the Raiders at Game 1 of the 72 season. Signed by Green Bay during the gdb "purge" after 3rd game of 72 season. Lando is a great example of what you can sometimes find in the FA pool if you look past the default values.
